IIT Picnic a Hit, Especially with Raffle Winners

Several hundred IIT/IITRI faculty, staff, and family members spent a summer afternoon outdoors at Morton Park on Main Campus for the annual university picnic, held on July 26. All in attendance had a chance to relax and enjoy a lunch that featured a variety of hot sandwiches, salads, and desserts, including cupcakes.
